When sweet my friend Amy asked me if she could order some cookies I said no.

No, No, No, No, absolutely not.

See, she is quite the talented baker, and makes some pretty amazing cookies.

She knows what cookies should look and taste like!

I was nervous.

Well. She wanted them for her hubbies birthday… he likes froggies and the color orange. (I did make him some orange cookies that I didn’t include in this roundup.)

This is the picture I was working from.


I sketched an overhead view I thought might work and attempted to wrangle the illusive red-eyed tree frog onto a cookie.



(I added more orange on this little guy… just trying different stuff)


Do you remember that original inspiration photo?

I wanted to do that.

But how??




Is that tiny baby froggie cute or what?


When I told little baby froggie that I was sending him to his new home he was not too happy with me.


Wouldnt talk to me for the rest of the photoshoot.
